Forder Valley Link Road – First Beam Lift
The Forder Valley Link Road project reached a major milestone on Monday (17th May) as work got underway to install the first of 28 concrete beams that will form the 140-metre bridge across the valley.
Each u-shaped beam measures 32 meters in length and needs to be carefully installed by an eight-strong crew.
Work to start installing the first of 28 beams got underway on Monday at the southern end of the bridge, nearest to Novorossiysk Road.
The Council has commissioned 2 videos:
